Update on CLA Activities Regarding Library and Archives Canada
Posted by CLA Govt Library and Info Mgmt Professionals Network on 2012/05/29
At its meeting today, the Canadian Library Association (CLA) Executive Council discussed issues related to recent cuts to Library and Archives Canada (LAC) and appropriate action to be taken by CLA.
Executive Council continues to encourage dialogue with LAC, and will work towards finding innovative solutions with LAC staff.
We continue to be dismayed by the government’s decision to reduce LAC’s funding.
We will engage relevant government officials and LAC management in conversations to gather more information about the anticipated implications of the cuts in order to prepare an informed and considered approach on behalf of the library community.
